Getting an amazing smile is not as difficult as some people may think. Whilst there are some who will opt fpr the help of cosmetic dentistry to improve or repair their teeth, all you need to do in order to have naturally strong, healthy, and spectacular looking teeth is to take good care of them.

Whether your teeth are naturally beautiful or youíve had some dental procedures done to improve your smile, the things you need to do to keep these from deteriorating are pretty much the same.

You can keep your pearly whites from becoming dull, fading, and suffering from damage by following some of these tips on how you can keep them looking healthy and strong:

Watch what you eat and drink
What you ingest will have an effect on your teeth, and this includes both the inside and the outside of it. Some foods and drinks can stain and discolor your teeth, which is why you need to either avoid or minimise your intake of such things which include red wine, black tea and cola.

You should also try to avoid ingesting acidic foods too often since these can break down your tooth enamel which can open your tooth to more damage. Sugary foods and drinks should also be minimised or avoided if you want your teeth to stay strong and healthy since these also produce acids that eat away at teeth.

To promote healthy teeth from within, eat foods rich in calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and vitamin D.

Stop any teeth discoloring and damaging habits
The most common advice you will hear when it comes to chucking habits that can damage teeth is to stop smoking since this will badly stain your teeth.

Other not-so-common recommendations include not biting into hard objects like ice as well as hard candy, and even non-edible hard stuff, like your fingernails and the ends of your pens.

Change your toothbrush regularly
The ideal life span of a toothbrush is 2 to 3 months, so you should change this at least 4 times in a year. If you continue using the same toothbrush for a long period of time, you are actually just adding bacteria to your teeth and not removing them when you do so.

Visit your dentist on a regular basis
Going to a dentist is not reserved for those times when you have tooth problem; but rather to ensure that your teeth look and stay healthy. Your dentist will do more than just clean and fix your teeth for you. They can also give you advice on how to properly brush your teeth, and what kind of dental products are best for you. They will also tell you if your teeth are prone to specific dental issues, will give you recommendations for improving your smile, and can catch oral problems early on, to address before they get worse.
